In the following video, our very own Rev. Charlie Hinkle discusses Pope Francis’s recent comments in support of same-sex unions.
Charlie is a retired lawyer. He was the lead lawyer for the ACLU here in Portland, Oregon. Charlie is a long-time member of Clackamas UCC and he happens to be a gay Christian. Charlie reflects on the recent comments from Pope Francis in support of same-sex unions and the history of the movement toward same-sex unions and marriage.
We are so grateful and proud of Charlie’s lifelong work to make Portland and the world a more just and loving place.
